Ah yes Cherie, but our concrete now looks green as it is so wet the moss has grown on it. Mind you they did lift the hose ban three weeks ago, not that did anything but make us all laugh.
The weather is atrocious apart from today and it did not rain till later on in the afternoon, which i suppose is different from being woken up by the sound of rain battering everything in sight!
Or black clouds and teeming rain every morning day in and day out. High winds tomorrow and more rain, that will make a change as they claim it will not be so cold.
With a bit of luck it will rain so much they it will rain so much they will have to cancel the Olympic games and give us all our money back! Grumbling Angry
Everyone is moaning about the internet at the moment, and the reason is simple. It says on the isp site maintenance due to the Olympic games. Who cares about the Olympic games, we don't and never wanted it here in the first place. So now we are told to walk, run or cycle to work and not to use public transport or cars. Then could we who pay for it to keep off the internet as the games are on soon, and tourists wish to use it and our transport we have paid for.
I don't think so, let it rain non stop and flood the damn thing out.

Not fair they do that Neil. Just shows they care more about the tourist and their money, than the ones that live there!

Dear Linda, the people of the east end of London were bombed to pieces by the Germans in world war 2 as it was the docks area. They survived a terrible ordeal, but their part of London was laid to waste. The Royal family visited it constantly and our own Queen was an Ambulance driver in that part of London, despite the risks. They had nothing and still don't; nobody was interested in bomb sites until lately when the banks moved in! They with the politicians grabbed some land cheap and built Canary Wharf which is hideous, it saved money for them on the high prices in the City of London. and made money for the bankers and politicians, of course!
Then they took more land to build the Olympic Games stadium and everything else. The house prices and cost of living had already gone sky high because of the banks, now it is ludicrous.
Did they ask the people of the east end to build it and get work in a poor area, no they did not, they used cheap eastern European labour to save money, whilst they made money.
Now they ask the people of the east end to be volunteers, totally unpaid to be stewards at the games, and the people rightly refused. So now they have to use the Army or what is left of it, to do the job.
I am not a socialist or indeed a communist, I am British and a Royalist and proud of it! I have fought for this country like all my family have, and what do we get, nothing!
What right do politicians or bankers have to cut our trees from the 1500s down in a Royal park that was built in 1411, for a two week event?
They do not show this on the TV, and the prices for us poor souls who live in the UK will not go down to pre Olympic prices.
I rest my case.
Love.
Neil.
p.s. This is what the bankers did to a proud east end.

Neil,

How did they justify cutting down all those trees for 2 weeks?

Dear Lucy, of course not they are politicians as well. One step the council, next step in the House of commons. They are all as bent as a bottle of chips.
Even certain an ex Olympic athlete who organized this got a knighthood, although our Queen is forced to do by the government, what she is told!
The people here are sick of the whole affair and I love sports, but this is going too far!
Lovey dubby

Something to Cheer you all up! This is the Ladybird poppy or Papaver commutatum 'Ladybird' which I love. So do the bees as well, as they adore this.
Hope you like it/
